Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 29, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers Love matches often turn sour November 1973 THE LETHiRIDOI HIRALO 19 THE BETTER HALF By Barnes Datr I never thought I'd write to you but I have a story to tell that might be useful to the girls who wonder why they donTt get asked for a second date. Last night I took out a duck I've been panting after for three months. She's sensational-looking and I was dying to explore her head. that dolly never shut her mouth to come up for air. She talked until I thought my mind would blow. I dig smart birds but enough is enough and too much is plenty. I hope you will print and if Miss won- Stop-Talker-of-1973 Thinks I mean I sure do. Boiag- ed 1m Raciae Dear The Bible tells us that Samson slew one thousand Philistines with the jawbone of an ass. Through the countless romances have been killed with the same weapon and it's a crying shame. The smart girl knows how to listen. If she is so busy parading her knowledge that she doesn't pause to ask a question or give a fellow a chance to express an she lacks something more vital than intellectuality. It is called common sense. Dear Ann This afternoon I saw a driver hit a small dog and drive on I was so upset I didn't take the license number. It seemed more important to get the dog to the vet if it was still alive the dog was dead when I got to but it really wasn't the driver's fault. It was the fault of the ownerwho allowed his pet to run I would like that owner to know that his precious pet died with a crushed in a dirty with no one but a stranger who tried to shield him from the sun. And now the body lies in a garbage pail. You will probably cry your eyes out and tell everyone bow much you loved your but I don't believe it. If you really loved your dog you'd have taken better care of him. Thank for letting me get this off my chest. Perhaps someone will see himself in your column today.' I hope so Animal Lover From AUaita Dear So do I. Thank you for writing. Dear An I bought my husband a f30 sport shirt for his birthday. He said it was the best looking sport shirt he had ever seen. Last week I washed it by hand in lukewarm water and gentle suds. days you can put almost anything in the machine but I wanted to be es- pecially careful with this it came out ruined. The maroon stripes faded into the yellow and the shirt looks like a rag. I examined the shirt afterwards and found a small tag that DRY CLEAN ONLY. I took the shirt back to the salesperson who should have TOLD because not everybody looks for tags. He said he was sorry but it was not their fault. He refused to give me a new shirt. In my1 opinion he didn't treat me as if he wanted my future business. Am I Abus- ed Consumer Dear A. I don't agree. Before laundering anything you should always check to see it SHOULD be laundered. People who don't read tags have to pay for their mistakes. And that means doll. LESLIE COLITT Observer BERLIN of a seven-year- old boy who needs a daddy is seeking a modern- thinking partner not under five feet seven inches. Marriage not excluded. Send This advertisement which appears with dozens of others in an East German newspaper is one of thousands that run each week in the publications of Central and Eastern Europe. Marriage ads are a tradition in this area that dates back to the German the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the original rebellion against arranged marriages. For decades they have led to contacts that sometimes resulted in marriage but equally often ended in the broken hearts of gullible women. What has changed today is the great number of ads plac- ed by divorced or un- married women with children. They make up the army of emancipated women who are the beneficiaries of liberalised divorce laws and the removal of the stigma attached to children. More equal job and socialist con- ditions in East Czechoslovakia and Hungary have not solved the emotional and biological problems of the legions of lonely young women. Recent investigations in the German Democratic Republic have shown that the widel- read ads hide many pitfalls for the un- suspecting female. A large percentage of the men who respond to their ads are either married and have children or are young men with no real contact problems. Both categories of males are out for a brief flirtation with no further complications. Some of the in specialize in single working moving free of charge into their flats while promising them marriage. To put an end to such the German Democratic Republic is to establish a State- run contact of- using computers to br- ing together likely candidates. But in affairs of the two other Communist Czechoslovakia and have already paved the way. Prague's Seznaka ac- Institute has been operating for 12 years. Lonely Czechs and Slovaks fill out questionnaires here in which multiple choice answers are given to help the less ex- pressive among them. For a small and after the client's identity papers are checked with the police to rule out married his or her card is kept for a half year. Three offers to choose from are made at a time and con- tacts take place at small even- ing parties arranged for the shy. In the last 300 marriages are said to have come about under its auspices. At Budapest's State marriage in- the results appear less impressive. In two years of some contacts have been arranged but only 52 ended in nuptial vows. But Mrs. Rosza director of the says a lot of good friendships have come about. In the this could be considered as good as matrimony. mainly are received in the atmosphere of a private home in the hilly Buda section of the city. A dossier is completed with the assistance of a a sociologist and a legal expert. A computer is used to make an approximate but Mrs. Szillagyi says it does not play a She calls it more of a aid'.' and notes that the dif- ficult procedure of bringing together personalities is done by the professional staff. The client's demands as to the job and outward of a prospective partner are fed into the com- puter which offers a preliminary selection. A typically Hungarian touch is added in the warm when couples are introduced in the intimate rose garden behind the institute. thaf s another dead Mr. and Mrs. M.
